Charts: potential new uptrends in CREE, DLB

Looking at a potential change in trend for CREE, maker of LED lighting products. 



I've done up the chart in the manner of Vic Sperandeo's "1-2-3" trend change guide. As you can see, CREE has broken out above the trend line. The lowest low preceding the breakout provides a test floor or boundary and the previous minor rally high acts as the ceiling which CREE must break through to define the change in trend. 

Right now we have a possible change in trend. If CREE tests that upper boundary and then breaks out above that previous high, we'll have a defined trend change and a new uptrend in place, according to Sperandeo's method. 

Also, a recent break above a year-long downtrend line and a successful fill of a prior downward gap at the 37.60 level may be a sign of a positive trend for Dolby (DLB). 



I have to say I'm not as familiar with the current fundamental picture on Dolby. Of course, they are a leader in film sound technology and surround sound, etc. for home entertainment. 

A bit more research will have to be done here (and I'll also take a look at IMAX and RLD), but I think it's safe to say we all know that...

The Dot-Com Bubble in 1 Chart: InfoSpace

With all the recent talk of a new bubble in the making, thanks in part to the Yellen Fed's continued easy money stance , I thought it'd be instructive to revisit our previous stock market bubble - in one quick chart. So here's what a real stock market bubble looks like.  Here's what a bubble *really* looks like. InfoSpace in 1999-2001. $QQQ $BCOR pic.twitter.com/xjsMk433H7 — David Shvartsman (@FinanceTrends) February 24, 2015   For those of you who are a little too young to recall it, this is a chart of InfoSpace at the height of the Nasdaq dot-com bubble in 1999-2001. This fallen angel soared to fantastic heights only to plummet back down to earth as the bubble, and InfoSpace's shady business plan , turned to rubble. As detailed in our post, " Round trip stocks: Momentum booms and busts ", InfoSpace rocketed from under $100 a share to over $1,300 a share in less than six months.  In a pattern common to many parabolic shooting stars, the s

Jesse Livermore: How to Trade in Stocks (1940 Ed. E-book)

If you've been around markets for any length of time, you've probably heard of 20th century supertrader, Jesse Livermore . Today we're highlighting his rare 1940 work, How to Trade in Stocks (ebook, pdf). But first, a brief overview of Livermore's life and trading career (bio from Jesse Livermore's Wikipedia entry). "During his lifetime, Livermore gained and lost several multi-million dollar fortunes. Most notably, he was worth $3 million and $100 million after the 1907 and 1929 market crashes, respectively. He subsequently lost both fortunes. Apart from his success as a securities speculator, Livermore left traders a working philosophy for trading securities that emphasizes increasing the size of one's position as it goes in the right direction and cutting losses quickly.
